MCCJ Humanitarian Awards Gala

There are those in South Florida who believe in making every second count for the good of their city. Six of those individuals exemplify the meaning of creating an inclusive community, and therefore, were honored at the annual MCCJ Humanitarian Awards Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel, which was hosted by Dinner Chair, Hilarie Bass.

This inspirational evening has become a highlight of the season. Receiving the prestigious Silver Medallions were honorees Merrett Stierheim, Ruth Shack, T. Willard Fair, and Peter Dolara. In addition, MCCJ posthumously honored Tony Goldman and awarded The Clergy Medallion to Rabbi Gary Glickstein. Since 1946, MCCJ has recognized leaders in the business, religious and corporate community by awarding them with this coveted medallion. This year’s outstanding leaders have demonstrated extraordinary humanitarian efforts, which mirror MCCJ’s mission of creating an inclusive community. Over 20 past recipients also attended the gala, including Tony Argiz, Alberto Carvalho, Al Dotson, Richard Fain, Deborah Hoffman, George Knox, David Lawrence Jr., Gepsie Metellus and Reverend Dr. Patrick O’Neill.
